Letter Order for Houghton Mifflin Journeys Kindergarten

The girls are away at Grandma and Grandpa's and my brain is shifting into school mode!  I am desperately trying to crank out my brain child, a poetry notebook based off of Houghton Mifflin Journeys.  (It's done you can get it here. )You probably already know there isn't an easy way to figure out the letter order!!  Well I just took the guesswork out for you.  Here it is! (Oh and I included the sight words too.)

Another great tip I got from a colleague is to throw EVERYTHING you use for each unit into the journeys tubs.  So take all the cards, leveled reader books, master  printables etc. and just throw them in there! :)


  1. Thanks so much for this post! I appreciate the info. I grabbed your button and put it on my blog. Thanks again. Do you have the list of literature used for kindergarten in the series?

  2. Thank you so much!!! Was just about to do all this work myself but thought to google it first. :) You are awesome for sharing!!!

  3. Does anyone know of a school/ district that has this all figured out in the way Waltke'sWebor K kove had Scott Foresmanorganized? I realize the is a lot of stuff on tpt, but I am looking for a complete overall picture? Where are the games mentioned on the cards? Are the in the instructional strategies - they were not easy to find. Thanks
